The First Snow

mouse-trail-1The first snow
lies heavy
on the earth

silencing . . .
everything

illuminating
paths
once
hidden

deer
squirrel
rabbits
and
mice

those tiny
trails lead
back to
homes
buried
deep. . .

I will not
bother
you this
day

I simply
acknowledge
your presence
within the forest
of my heart
